These super absorbent dog paw doormats are a lifesaver. I was a little skeptical at first, but the Soggy Doggy Doormat works amazing! With light tile, light carpet, and wood floors, we were constantly battling our dog's dirty paws. Not anymore :) The Soggy Doggy doormat works better than anything we have tried to date. See it put to the test in the video above.
Soggy Doggy Doormat Overview
Every dog owner knows the drill...
Your dog begs to go out in the pouring rain and then prances back inside, depositing water, mud, dirt and those annoying paw prints all over clean floors. Mounds of towels by the door and the world's biggest doormat are no match for the wet dog... But the SOGGY DOGGY DOORMAT is!
What's The Secret?
Super-absorbent, durable, microfiber chenille!
Each of the “noodles” in the Soggy Doggy Doormat® and Soggy Doggy Super Shammy is made from millions of textured, ultrafine strands woven together, so the surface area of these products is much greater than meets the eye! The expansive surface area is the secret to microfiber chenille’s tremendous absorbing power and super-fast drying!
The microfiber chenille blend allows the Soggy Doggy Doormats® and Super Shammys to soak up water and dirt like a sponge! The doormats absorb 5x more water than regular cotton doormats and the Super Shammy can hold up to 7x its weight in water! The material is exceptionally hard-working and goes right in the washer and dryer! But the chenille also makes it velvety-soft and gentle under delicate paws and bellies.

Joanna Rein is the mother of 4 children and one mud loving Labrador named Buddy. She created the Soggy Doggy Doormat out of necessity. "I could not train my kids to wipe the dog’s paws before he came in from the wet yard! No matter how many doormats, rags and towels I left by the backdoor (and no matter how many times I told the kids to use them), there was endless mess (and endless yelling) in my house", says Joanna.
Inspiration came at a kids’ swim meet. As Joanna watched a young diver dry off with a super-absorbent shammy, lightbulbs went off! If that small piece of material could dry an entire child, why wasn’t there something similar for 4 wet, mucky dog paws?
With the (skeptical) assistance of the guys at the local hardware store and a very patient tailor, she made the first Soggy Doggy prototype. Many rounds of experimentation later, she found the perfect material blend in the microfiber chenille shag. Its "noodley" fibers not only make it exceptionally absorbent, but they also snag a tremendous amount of debris (note to moms: great for snowy boots and dirty cleats, especially those used on crushed-rubber turf fields). "Honestly, we were astounded by the shag’s absorbency and dirt-catching ability", Joanna says. Buddy, also approves.
"Wow! I got two of these to put at the entrance of the dog door. I didn’t have much hope as all the previous mats I’ve tried have only helped somewhat and I still would get muddy footprints on the floor every time there is dew on the grass or it rains. I have two dogs – a big retriever mix and a medium size dog who likes to dig. This morning I watched them come in with obviously wet and dirty paws, run across the mats, and then NOTHING on my tile floor. Double Wow!!! I am so unbelievably thankful and thrilled!!!
Thank you for finding this wonderful product and making it available. Your video really sold me on it and I now have seen it work with my own eyes." - Andrea
"I just purchased this mat a couple weeks ago and I can tell you that this thing is LIFECHANGING for me!! I have a 120 pound lab who is very muscular and full of energy and since I am home all the time with him, due to chronic pain issues, I am the one who takes him out and has to deal with his muddy paws. I literally pulled my arm and shoulder out trying to wipe him down in my back hall. Well since I put this down, I cant believe how amazing it works! I dont have to wipe him at all. This mat is WONDERFUL!! All he has to do is step on it with his paws and he is mud free! He doesnt even have to walk on it. I cant believe how well it works. I only wish I would have known about this years ago!! This mat is worth every single penny it costs! I LOVE IT!!! I would recommend it to anyone and everyone. I am BEYOND pleased with my purchase!! So thank you doggy outdoors for making this mat! I love it!!!" - Rachel F.
"We have a dog door in the house and the soggy doggy doormat is our first line of defense to keeping muddy pawprints off the wood floors. The soggy doggy is much more effective than a regular floor mat for absorbing water, and you can use it like a towel on the dog's paws for really muddy days. The soggy doggy doormat is sturdy, yet comfortable on the dog's paws. It looks really cute, too! -Erika
"I was hesitant, since I couldn't see or feel the actual material before I ordered online. The doormat is fantastic. The color is great; we have the mat at the entrance from our back gardens to the living room... where the dogs enter/exit all day long. They come in with muddy feet (12 paws in all) and simply walking across the doormat has stopped them from leaving dirty pawprints on our polished wood floors. And: despite the continual canine and human traffic, the nonskid actually works perfectly.
I immediately bought other Soggy Doggy products as Christmas presents for my son, who owns a dog walking & boarding service in Chicago. That is the ultimate test: wet, dirty, muddy dogs all day long, and during winter, too. He's now a believer in Soggy Doggy, too. (So are my dog-owning friends: one bought the super sized one for her 2 German Shepherds.
Amazing product and excellent quality construction." -Meryl
"I have a chocolate lab who doesn't care what the weather is, she loves to go outside. On those rainy, muddy days, I'd cringe each time she wanted to go out, until I purchased the Soggy Doggy mat for my door. It truly IS amazing. The mud and wetness from her paws soak into the mat in a few seconds. I no longer need to catch her at the door with a towel. This mat does all the work.....TRULY AMAZING! I also purchased one for under her water dish. Best find EVER!!!" - Karla
"I'm a dog behavioral therapist, and have three dogs along with a large yard. Since I bought the Soggy Doggy rug, the amount of mud, leaves and redwood fronds being tracked into the house has gone from a LOT to hardly anything. I love this product and recommend it to clients all the time." - Karen
"We have three playful medium sized dogs whose wet muddy mess is well absorbed by the soggy doggt mat. They even like to cuddle up in it. I like how the mat also absorbs the wet from my boots and washes up well. Our soggy doggy mats are perfect and our wood floors will live longer thanks to them!" - Kimberly
"Works better then anything I have tried as far an getting dogs feet clean and free of mud here is soggy Portland, OR. I have tried several other types of rugs. The minuses are rug is thick and so you can't put in front of door with small clearance from the floor. I also wish they had some more classy or simple designs. I love my dog but that doesn't mean I want to decorate with dog bones everywhere." - Lisa
"I have a very rambunctious black lab and very muddy backyard when it rains. I've been so sick of cleaning up every time he comes in and out of the house. This product does everything it advertises. Just get the dog to sit on the mat move around once or twice and no mess leaves with him. I would (and have) recommend this product to anyone looking for a clean floor and a happy dog." - Remy
"I simply cannot say enough good things about the doormat and super shammy! I received one of each as a housewarming gift and while initially I was skeptical, as the claims seemed too good to be true, after the first time my German Shepherd enjoyed a rainy / muddy day, I couldn't sing their praises loud enough. This may well be the only product I've ever seen that has not only lived up to the hype, but surpassed it. Just ordered another doormat and super shammy so that I have them at both entrances. This product has truly made my life a lot easier." - M. Cain
"I gave this as a Christmas gift. The recipient says it works great!! He has a large dog that tracks in lots of grass and mud in the winter months" - Maddox
"My hubby and I love our doggies!!! But muddy paws, especially with several doggies, means lots of cleanup. Well, the difference with that issue since we purchased these mats is incredible!!!! I don't know how these mats work so well~~but they do! It is truly amazing how much mud and wetness is just totally absorbed off the dog's paws by just standing on these mats! We are so happy with it that we bought a second one to cover a larger area. We are sold, and we are so happy with this product. We highly recommend it." - Mary Ann
"I have struggled for years trying to wipe wet and muddy paws before letting my dog back in the house when it's raining. Then I tried boots--a royal pain. I'd purchased the Soggy Doggy bath towel via Groupon and loved it. When the doormat arrived, I had high hopes, having watched a video demonstration on the web site. Well, it works like a charm. All he has to do is walk across it and I can see no wet paw prints on the tile entry...and I know it's helped keep the carpets cleaner. He loves napping on it as well. Great product, thank you!!" - Patricia
"I have to say. My lab has chewed every rug or towel that we have left by the back door. So, I hesitated to spend the money on this but saw the doormat featured on a local TV show. Not only does my dog pause to 'wipe her paws,' I have found her lying on it in the sun in the late afternoon. So, far she hasn't chewed on it! Most importantly, her paws are dry and clean!" -Modelguru
"I not only bought three of these (different colors) for my house. I started giving them as Christmas Presents to my doggy friends. And boy! Were they pleased! The Soggy Doggy Doormats do everything you'd want them to. They also wash up well. I use them at the door, and under my feeders. Where I used to have a veritable lake (beneath the water bowls in particular), I now have a much cleaner/drier floor. These are GREAT! Highly recommended!" - Canzo
"I love these products! I bought the mat first, it stays in front of her doggy door so her feet get dry before entering the house and when it rains I put one outside the doggy door and one inside and by the time she hits the floor her feet are dry! Now she has the one for her food as well." - Janine
